You said it to me
With your eyes so wide, excited
I stop to see what you mean

In the drone of afternoon traffic
On a slope that's slippery
In the relative fear, invited
That keeps us company

We took it all
Without taking it away
We shook it
It didn't blow up in our face
This life's abundancy came clear to me

These hands are holding a kite of worry
That floats high and circles a pivot of fear
In the wind are the words that say "There's no time! Hurry!"
So we grab what we can
We think The End is near

We took it all
Without taking it away
We shook it
It didn't blow up in our face
This life's abundancy came clear

We can get back up
We can move from this ground
To where there is enough of everything
What has opened up this crevice at our feet
Has created a new sense of urgency

Without taking it away
We shook it
It didn't blow up in our face
This life's abundancy came clear
